I've been introduced to something new...adding to the que hey Stitchy?

Coining a phrase from a neighbor blogger friend...
" adding it to the que"
That's for you Stitchy....:)

I've heard of this, but not until recently have I been exposed to the lovliness that is Crewel Work..My
sweet MIL has a beautiful Crewel Work tablecloth, and she had it out for Easter. Bless her heart she is 80 years old, and still dislplays each holiday.  She has what I call a treasure trove of craft items, I believe she has done every kind of hand craft in her 80 years. We were talking about the tablecloth, and she went down to the basement, and brought up a crewel project she had started in 1973 and never completed..see it happens to everybody..  The Que, WIP, whatever you want to name it.....I'm going to give this a will take me some time since I've never done this before. I like the look of the Crewel, it is with yarn of course I would.

I can't wait to watch your journey on this one. It's going to be so much fun.

What a true labor of love to have her work and your work on one piece. It will be something very special to hand down thru the generations.

Blessings always :)

Leaving the light on for you
